Write On, Door County will offer a youth program called “Would You Rather” on April 1, 9-11 am, at Crossroads at Big Creek in Sturgeon Bay. Under the guidance of instructor Dee Paulsen, young people will debate both silly and slightly serious (and a few truly twisted) topics and leave with a handmade book. The cost of this program is $15. To pre-register, visit writeondoorcounty.org.
Also on April 1 is a Pike Hike at 4 pm. Northern Pike are unpredictable even in predictable weather, so it’s appropriate the hike is on April Fools Day. The odds of seeing these large, secretive fish are not good, but odds were just as bad a year ago, and hikers saw some. This hike is free and open to the public. Meet at the Collins Learning Center.
On April 4 at 7 pm, the Door County Master Gardeners Association will sponsor a talk titled “Door County Wild Mushrooms” presented by Charlotte Lukes. She has been studying wild mushrooms for more than 44 years and has identified 573 species in Door County. This program is free and open to the public.
The Collins Learning Center, located at 2041 Michigan just east of the Highway 42/57 Roundabout in Sturgeon Bay, is open 2-4 pm daily and during scheduled activities. Trails in all preserves are open 24/7, free of charge. For more information visit crossroadsatbigcreek.com.
